Please don't! He's MINE! MINE I TELL YOU:) Lol!

I know! I nearly died watching him eat his first snail! It was the funniest thing ever. I may try uploading a video of his first meal though. I got him from one of the LFS around where I live. It's called Aquarium Adventure. It is over priced and not the best quality, but it has the best selection and the only one around where I live that has DPs!

I'll add a few more photos:)

Or a 5g;-) If you got a 10g you could get 2-3 of them! Just make sure it's really planted!

PM me if you have any questions, I've researched a bunch and asked a lot of other keepers as well.

I'll be waiting:-D

I want him.
I wanted him too! And so I got him! LOL :lol:

Pea puffers are just soooo cute! I have an 8g hex I'm thinking of using with a few puffers. Just have to have a good source of snails to keep them happy.
You should! I'd do one or two in there! They are ADORABLE!!! I just can't stop watching Joey. And I have a 1g bowl that I'm breeding snails in, and a 12g down stairs that I have a whole infestation to get rid of;-) I don't think Joey will be starving anytime soon:-D

I called my local PTC about whether or not they had dwarf puffers. Instead of giving me a yes or no answer, they ordered 3 for me with the next fish shipment.

When I showed up at the store, they were NOT dwarf puffers. They were large leopard puffers. 3"-4" and only about $4 or $5?. 2 had their tails chewed off by who else, the most aggressive puffer.

I was like these are not the pea sized dwarf puffers.

These would have killed everything in my tank.

@ktlelia: thanks! He's absolutely hilarious when he "hunts" his snails. Although I'm having a hard time finding out what he likes...

@MSG: that would be awful to experience! Getting your hopes up only to see the wrong fish. Hopefully you'll be able to find some:-D

@gn3ranger: a 10g would be great for three of these little guys;-). They're so worth every bit of effort put into them! And what do you mean by "run me down"?
